Hi,

These are the two IMS commands used for establishing the connection with DLI, the interface module.

There are two types of DLI commands,

First at the beginning of every COBOL program, we need to establish the connection between DLI to our program. ie, we need to provide DLITCBL(You can read it as DLI to COBOL)

and for for each of the establishment of the connection of database with our program through DLI, we need to connect our program with DLI, this can be established through CBLTDLI(Cobol to DLI) .

Please let me know if you have got something..

Thanks for your reply..

Let me clarify my question :

I want to know the difference between command mode and CALL mode for using DLI.

In some programs to do a GU call can be made using the command mode that is 'EXEC DLI
.......
........
END-EXEC'

OR

CALL 'CBLTDLI' ....
.....

Thanks

Command mode is used to establish the connection with the database through DLI interface and CALL mode is to access the data from IMS database through interface DLI


Thanks,

Hi shabir,
Does it mean 'EXEC DLI' is same as 'CALL DLITCBL'?

Both commands are same. EXEC DLI is for CICS interface.

refrain from posting wrong information
from the manual
Quote:
The EXEC DLI commands are the only ones allowed for EXEC DLI. They can be used to read and update DL/I databases with a batch program, a BMP region (running DBCTL or DB/DC), or a CICS program using DBCTL.
